Full Episode description

In this bonus episode of Cool Facts About Animals, we interview Kathryn Olivarius, a professor of history at Stanford University who studies the spread of diseases through mosquitoes, particularly yellow fever in the southern United States in the 1800s.

We talk about:

  • what diseases mosquitoes spread
  • the ethics of wiping out mosquito populations
  • the effects of climate change on mosquitoes (hint – it’s not good for us humans, but it’s great for mosquitoes!)
  • and what kids can do to try to dial back climate change.

Check it out, and make sure to listen to our regularly-scheduled episode on mosquitoes, which should already be in your feed.

Thanks as always for listening!
